am really excited about route 61 superb  resident djs ive been here with carl its a gr8 venue ive been a lover and a dancer of northern soul since 1974 when I left school I was lucky enough to experienced this scene in its height and the memories are precious, this will be my last time doing a guest dj spot in the uk for a long time as I move to spain permantly on the 29th august, so I hope to go out in style with some proper northern soul I grew up with over the years ... I will however be concentrating on my own northern soul week next year with my partner mr carl piper over in spain ,thankyou to steve foster for asking me to play at route 61,im very honest im a dancer always will be but when ever I get the chance to dj I will do my best to play decent soul we grew up with so if you feel like dancing come along am sure I can jolt youre memories to when we packed the floors in our teens to this wonderfull music that is soul ....

We'll be there Steve - absolutely love it to death at the Viagra Suite!

I'll say it again, you guys give us some wonderful records to dance to - always get to hear something new. Such a friendly place run for the love of it by proper soul people who've been around since the beginning.

If you're anywhere near (or not!) COME DOWN... there's some serious soul music waiting for you!!!!!

Stu and Clare

Thanks bro, Tezza ~ Ian & myself plus guest DJs always do our utmost to make sure Route61 is a great night I am constantly going through my old shelved records to hopefully dig something out and give a spin during my early spot they sometimes work but if not its always a glorious change to the run of the mill stuff !

Part 1 of the Sheffield Weekender starts Friday at Route 61.  Come along and help us sent Tommo off to Sunny Spain and wish him all the best for the future.  He won't be a stranger but he won't be around as often as we would like.  Good luck mate, we will miss you XXX

as always when I get a chance to dj I get excited at the opportunity and spend several days planning my set, I do like to sprinkle a few that were dance floors fillers back in the 70s  that have for some reason or other been

   neglected for several years nothing clever from me  just stuff that packed the dance floors in my youth and deserve the air play again ... looking forward to linking up with tezza and steve ,must say I know ian gee aint here on fri but ian as just sold me a belting record am gonna spin ... ktf tommo.

Hello All

 

Yes I got my few marbles that are left mixed up and nearly set off to the NE. Nice to kick off the BH with our monthly portion of carefully selected Northern Soul and blessed with a visit from "Tommo" who will be keeping the floor busy with his particular sounds.

 

Myself, Steve and Terry filling in the gaps and giving you fresh dance sounds from the past that have sadly been left behind but are now getting a much deserved resurgence.  Come along and join the party, always a lovely warm welcome from Steve and lots of smiling faces attending every month.  A venue to die for with a super sound system. 

 

See you all there then

 

KTF

thankyou to steve foster ,ian gee,terry westhead on my guest spot at route 61, I don't consider myself a dj, im a dancer and lover of the music but when given the opportunity to play records I do try my best! route 61 played some cracking records last night not all the top 500 either but no suprises there with terry,steve and ian pulling together .... I myself do what I always do when given a dj spot I play from the heart and mainly records I grew up with that don't get the airplay anymore ... right im off to sunny spain now hopefully will see a few of you soulies next year at mine and carl pipers venue IVE GOT SOMETHING GOOD ... ktf tommo .

Cracking night at The Niagra and Route 61.  A great turnout for Tommo's 'farewell'.  Lovely Music played and Tommo brought out a few memory jerkers plus some of his own 'childhood' favs.  It was a great night indeed.  Hope the assembled crowd can make it a regular haunt, deserves the adulation this place.  Hopefully we will see you all next Month and perhaps you can tell your friends about ROUTE 61 !!

Well said Terry it sure was a brilliant turnout ! the four of us really gave it to the crowd with our special class of soul records & as Tommo said not the usual 500 top sounds but some great memories, I loved every record played some I didn't even know & I thought I had heard them all lol it just goes to prove we don't know every record ! & its always refreshing to hear them for a first time !

I give my thanks to everyone that came along last night & made it a fantastic night & to help wish Tommo & Debs all the very best for their new life in life in Spain & thank you for being our guest DJ Tommo & for sharing your past favourites that you loved & danced to over the years as soul brother,
Thank you as always to Terry & Ian ~ for their usual contribution of some great soul records the four of us gave you just the right stuff to make for a fabulous night.
Thank you to my daughter Lisa for once again looking after the till xxx
love to you all.

Hope to see the same next month guys until then see you out & about ! xxx

Hello All

 

It's all been said already about last night at "The Route".  True to form we all tried to whet your appetites with the underplayed stuff  and forgotten stuff, hopefully all the requests got played because there was quite a few asked for.

 

Thank you Tommo for your trip down memory lane and all the best for your trip to Spain.  However, most thanks must be given to all who attended from all parts of the Country, alongside the regulars between you keeping the floor full all night.

 

Once again my thanks to Steve for making me one of the "Route 61 Team" along with my mate Terry.

 

See you all at the next one then.

 

KTF

Can only echo what Ian said.  Lets keep it going at Route 61.  A quality night that deserves the crowd it got Friday.  No one went away dissappointed and I am sure we will see you all again next Month.  If you enjoyed it then tell your Friends to come along to.  Myself, Steve and my good friend Ian would love to see you there.
